    Winemaker Notes
    Deep ruby red color. Elegant and powerful at the same time with inviting perfumes of red berries and clean freshness, complex and balanced. It presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and voluptuous body, and interesting, silky tannins.
    Brunello goes very well with red meats, homemade pasta with wild boar sauce, medium seasoned cheese. To fully appreciate its qualities, decant the wine at least one hour before serving.
     

    96: James Suckling
    Fantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018. 
    #5 Top 25 Brunello di Montalcino's of 2012

    94: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The Argiano 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of interpreting the vintage and of showcasing its special microclimate on the southern flank of the Montalcino appellation. Both these elements point to warm-climate Sangiovese. and Argiano accepts that challenge with creativity and expertise. This is a proud expression of the grape with thick texture, determination and a succulent approach. Aromas of dark cherry, moist earth, tobacco and grilled herb lift from the bouquet. Bright acidity marks the close. The wine still carries its baby fat and needs a few more years of cellar aging in order to fully express itself.

    93: Wine Spectator
    An elegant style, displaying cherry, currant, tobacco and earth flavors. The tannins are present yet integrated. This leaves a lasting impression of balance and sweet fruit. Best from 2019 through 2032.

    92: Wine Enthusiast
    Aromas of toast, dark spice, dried tobacco leaf and forest floor take shape in the glass. On the chewy, full-bodied palate, notes of black pepper, clove and espresso accent a core of dried black cherry while firm tightly-knit tannins and fresh acidity provide the backbone. Drink 2019–2027.
